These simple yet durable baskets are hand woven by women in rural Tanzania. Available in three sizes, they are useful in every room of the home. Accents of naturally dyed black milulu grass elevate these traditional baskets as modern décor.

Responsibly sourced and thoughtfully crafted with local milulu grass by Fair Trade artisans in Tanzania.

Please note: Iringa baskets may be shipped flattened into a box, for better shipping. You can reshape your basket by wetting (with cold water) the straw and shaping the basket with your hands, then allowing it to dry.

Artisan Story

HANDWOVEN IN TANZANIA

Home of the Hehe people, the city of Iringa is situated 300 miles from Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, and stretches along a hilltop overlooking the Ruaha River to the south. Iringa is famous for its woven baskets made from local reeds. The baskets are an important source of income for the 100,000 population town and are used across Tanzania and exported worldwide.
